Peace and Blessings!
I am a Wichita native and mother of four, two of which I gave birth to. My birthing experiences were like night and day. The first, I had no voice and very little information. The second go round I did my research, knew my rights, was empowered and had the experience I desired. As I researched I discovered Black women and children in the US have very high death rates when it comes to pregnancy and delivery. That’s when I realized I wanted to make it my mission to help other women of color become empowered and to help them create the birthing experience they desire. As your Neighborhood Doula Advocate I plan to equip my families with the tools necessary to have successful births. I believe the ability to bring life into this realm is a gift and knowledge is power. Our community deserves change!
